Goblin Spiders in Picturing Science
Museum researchers use a scanning electron microscope (SEM) to view goblin spiders in minute detail. This detailed study allowed Museum Curator Emeritus Norman Platnick and scientific assistant Nadine Dupérré to define two new genera, or groups, of spiders: Niarchos and Scaphios. See these and other striking images from current Museum research across all scientific divisions, from Anthropology to Vertebrate Zoology, in Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies, on view in the Akeley Gallery.
